How to make Accent Insensitive search

I need to modify this function so it will be case insensitive. My server (Sql2008) is set with the correct collation, so if i query directly against the database the result is OK. But i query from a preloaded list (to speed up things).

 How can this be achived?

Here is the C# function:

        internal IEnumerable<BO.DriverSearchGridBO> ApplySearchTextFilterTogrid IEnumerable<BO.DriverSearchGridBO> list, string textToSearch)
        {
            IEnumerable<BO.DriverSearchGridBO> newlist =
                  from d in list
                  where d.Name.Contains(textToSearch)
                  select d;
            return newlist;
        }

Thanks,

I asked ACCENT insensitive...

Your solution is for CASE insensitive comparison.

This one is a little bit tougher:)
